Advances in ecological risk management, a template for regulatory guidance, & an examination of the complex links between the science of ecological risk assessment and the needs of risk managers & decision-makers: Risk Management presents them all.
With a focus on waste sites, new chemicals and products, and natural resources, 3 major concepts develop:
- Risk-based decision-making can be an important tool for managing ecological risks.

- Science can provide some, but not all, of the answers required for managing ecological risks.
